Heat is a great way to release muscle tension and restore connective tissue hydration. I (Sharon) have one of these at home and it is great! For neck and shoulder pain or stiffness, pop this in the microwave for a few minutes then enjoy the heat for up to 45 minutes before needing to reheat.

The paid version also includes a body scan which can help you learn how to scan your body for tension and relax completely.
